“stop post+ from happening fill out this survey sign this petition do a log out protest” listen ive been here since 2011 that’s not how anything on this website works. whether or not you do these things post+ will stay, make little to no money for the website bc nobody uses it except self-important funnyman bloggers and instagram influencer wannabees, and slowly degrade as lack of maintinence from an underpaid staff brings it to complete obsolescence. Let nature run her course 😌
Alice In Chains - Grind (1995)
I’ve been cackling about this for like five minutes now
He’s absolutely right.
Also, the Joker started killing innocents for fun and profit in Batman #1 (published April 24, 1940) and has been killing his henchmen since at least 1975.
(He poisoned a former employee named Dubek with a rare tropical disease. By the way, Dubek was in prison and was refusing to tell the prison administration squat about the Joker. So Dubek was completely loyal–out of fear, granted, but still loyal–and the Joker murdered him anyway.)
Don’t forget that in B:TAS, they weren’t allowed to show him straight-up murdering people, so he also canonically uses motherfucking nerve gas. Which is HORRIBLE AND INTERNATIONALLY ILLEGAL TO THE POINT THAT HAVING IT IS A WAR CRIME. Not even using it! Just having it!
Like. Your best-case scenario as a Joker henchman is that, when facing down the motherfucking Batman, you start crying and telling him you were trying to pay off your student loans, and he sends you home and the next day you get a phone call from Wayne Industries with a job offer. And then you have to hope the Joker doesn’t fucking find you.
Meanwhile working for Lex Luthor is basically just an Amazon job with a slightly higher chance of getting lightly shoved by Superman, which you could probably get a company insurance payout for if you pretend you’re actually trying to fight him first
NGL I feel like if you started crying because of your student loans while dealing with Superman he’d be like “hit me” and you’d be like “….what” and he’d be like “HIT ME, that way you can claim it’s a workplace accident” and then he’d knock you out.
Like he would 100% be onboard with helping you pay your loans. (And then he’d call Bruce and be like “I have somebody in Metropolis who needs a job….”)
Some minors on this site are acting like people in their twenties are like ancient
Sorry to tell you but twenties is young. Thirties is young. Some of y’all are just in this state of mind that your twenties are the end of your life and it might seem like that for some of you but that’s just society pressuring y’all to be #young and #beautiful forever when you’re. A teen
Pop culture has done irreparable damage to teens and young adults to the point where they’re using filters to make the nature creases in their skin invisible. Like… everyone has wrinkles. It’s not a sign of aging it’s a sign of being a HUMAN
the actual reason I consume mediocre media is because I have bad taste. the deeper secret pretentious reason is because I think there’s something very revealing about bad media that you don’t get with good media. when you watch a poorly executed plot point unfold, you see the machinery behind it. you see the gap between what’s actually on screen and the true goal the author is striving for. if it’s particularly awful, you can even measure just how poorly mismatched the author’s skills are with the story they’re trying to tell you. watching a poorly executed narrative play out feels like you’re discovering something, because you see all the wiring and guts underneath that better authors hide from you, in the same way that movies hide boom mics and books make you forget you’re turning the pages. if a story is good and executed well you just see the story. but I want to see the guts and wires!
also I like complaining a lot
